Headlong & The Guardian present: Brexit Shorts

Thursday 09 November 2017, 19:00 to 21:00

A screening of short films followed by a conversation led between Guardian journalists John Harris and Chris Wiegand.

The Brexit vote was the single most significant event in UK politics since WW2. What does Brexit mean to you? Headlong and the Guardian have joined forces to explore the temperature of the country. In a series of short films, leading theatre voices reveal individual stories in a divided Britain. Featuring: Kristin Scott Thomas, Penelope Wilton, Meera Syal, Steffan Rhodri, Bronagh Gallagher, Dean Fagan, Nasser Memarzia, Scott Reid and Joanna Scanlan.

Alongside Brexit Shorts, we will also be screening Anywhere but Westminsterfollowing John Harris and John Domokos as they go in search of the country's real politics, far away from the chatter of the Westminster village.

Following the screening there will be joined by John Harris and Chris Wiegand. Please read our recent interview with John Harris here.
